Phenology and Yield of Coriander (Coriandrum sativum L.) at Different Sowing Dates

A.B. Sharangi and A. Roychowdhury

In order to study the effects of sowing dates on phenology and yield of coriander (Coriandrum sativum L.), an experiment was conducted during 2010-2012 based on a randomized complete block design with three replications in HRS, Mondouri, BCKV, India. Six sowing dates included 5th November (D1), 12th November (D2), 19th November (D3), 26th November (D4), 3rd December (D5) and 10th December (D6). The results showed that a delay in sowing from November 5 to December 10 decreased plant height, number of primary branches per plant, days to 50% germination, days to flower initiation, days to 50% flowering and days to fruit maturity significantly. The 5th November exhibited significant improvement in yield attributes namely numbers of umbels per plant (25.58), umbellets per umbel (6.85), seeds per umbel (30.55), test weight (12.61 g), seed weight per plant (6.85 g) and seed yield ha-1 (1098.33 kg ha-1).
